Texas Ranger Jim Blawcyzk is riding the El Paso Limited en route to a routine assignment... until the train is wrecked and robbed. Barely escaping the flaming wreckage, Blawcyzk sets out to track down the outlaws responsible for such wanton death and destruction. What at first appears to be an isolated train robbery leads him to a much larger plot to destroy the Texas and Pacific Railroad.
Not only having to try and stop the men determined to ruin the railroad, Blawcyzk also finds himself the target of a mysterious drygulcher.
Jim Griffin writes with a true feel for the frontier West and Texas. Careful research and plenty of action are hallmarks of a Griffin western. After a few pages, you are pulled so deeply into the story you feel as if you yourself are riding with the Texas Rangers, tracking down outlaws and facing their deadly guns. ---- Jim Huggins, Lecturer of Forensic Science, Baylor University, Sergeant, Texas Rangers, Retired.
